Autumn in Japan brings about the relief from the heat and humidity of summer. With the changing of the weather comes the changing of the leaves. During autumn, Japan’s usually green forests are transformed into a patchwork of blazing reds, oranges and yellows. The beautiful colours of the changing leaves in autumn lends Japan to some of the most beautiful scenic walks and hikes you will ever experience. Japanese zen gardens, especially those in Kyoto, are rich in history and have been meticulously sculpted, resembling art more than nature. Additionally, these beautiful and tranquil gardens are transformed at night during light up events, giving you a chance to experience an even more magical atmosphere.
